it or paid for it. it's maizing the role the government is taking. if something should happen mr. obama wouldn't have to be sworn in. host: what is clearly a story is the al jeern troops. it involves the u.s.. the death toll remains unclear. there is a related story to all of this dealing with british politics. next is a caller from arizona democrats line. good morning. caller: good morning. people in the u.s.a. listen. i try and call in and make sense out of situations. a war doesn't make sense to me. excessive gun violence doesn't make sense to me. what makes sense to me is to have the wars that are passed to get paid for and to get paid for by the people that profitted the most. and that is the international globalized situation situation that people like mr. romney have gotten us into so that i did minute shs wages in the u.s.a. and people trying to get by can't pay any taxes. so the government has a roll to collect enough taxes like they used to. when we were forced into wars by the republicans wanting to take it all over the world in the depression and it wasn't possible because t
:40, the president and mrs. obama leave the white house for the capital. the inaugural ceremonies begin at 11:30 and include the ceremonial swearing-in of vice president biden. then at 11:55, president obama will be sworn in by chief justice john roberts. and at noon, the president will deliver his inaugural address. that will be followed by lunch at the capital. then around 2:30, the president leads a procession back to the white house where he and the first lady will watch the inaugural parade along pennsylvania avenue. down there among the people on the national mall is our national correspondent byron pitts. what do you see? >> good morning. 400,000 people were lucky enough to get tickets. they were members of the white house or the congress. about 30,000 people will sit closest to the podium. here in the same area four years ago. back then there was a great deal talk of race and the historical importance of the moment. i remember watching it, men and women wept as then president-elect obama took the oath of office. today, far less talk about race, mostly about the nation's business. but
been especially especially those of us who are parents, happy to abide by those rules. >> mrs. obama spent the first few months telling everybody i'm mom in chief. that is my job. it is possible to raise children in this incredibly intense spotlight and have them come out and be wonderful people and by all accounts, sasha and malia are having that experience, too. it's something that mrs. obama has talked about recently. i think i read a quote she said she's pleasantly surprised at how normal they are. so much so that the president notes they're not that interested in hanging out with him any more. this is a family enterprise. it's not the normal job where the parents and the children aren't connected through this. they have to go through this political experience. it's an incredibly intense spotlight. but by all accounts, these girls are flourishing. >> and i think about all of our friends coming in from texas and yale and sharing it with friends and i'm sure that's what the obama girls will do, too. so it becomes part of your life, part of what you would do, anyway, except for more
of optimism about the next four years. i think mr. obama is doing a heck of a good job. he is getting a lot of his promises down. i hope the next four years are as good as the last. thank you for having me. host: eric in seattle, what do think about all this? -- do you think about all this? you always have to turn down the volume and dirty -- on your tv. in today's inaugural, you'll hear a lot from senator schumer. here he is explaining his role in today's inauguration. >> the hardest part is trying to make sure everybody, there will be a huge crowd, not as big as four years ago, but a huge crowd, they get to their places, their seeds or standing places. as you know, there were big problems four years ago, not the fault of the committee, but of some people. we're trying to deal with huge numbers of people. we have done a couple of things -- we are using an iphone at -- app that will tell the on where they are and where the best route to go to, taking into account lines and everything, to get to their seat. people waited in line for hours, and when they got to the gate, they were told they w
that is on the airwaves now. watch this. >> mr. obama demands the wealthy pay their fair share of taxes but he is just another elitist hypocrite when it comes to a fair share of security. protection for their kids, and gun free zones for ours. bill: that is part of it. wendell goler live on the north lawn. what is the reaction to the nra ad, wendell. >> reporter: frankly none, bill. aides say they have no more desire for a confrontation with the nra than they already have. people will see secret service protection for the first family is no more elitist than protection for the president himself. in the wake of the newtown massacre, polls show public opinion in favor of many measures mr. obama will announce today. press secretary jay carney says it will take more than gun controls to make our children safe. >> this is something that we have to address as a nation. it is not something you can do alone through executive action. it is not something you can do with even a series of laws that, congress might pass. this is a problem that touches on a variety of areas of american life. and it needs to be appr
guards at their school. mr. obama demand the wealthy pay their fair share of taxes but just another elitist hypocrite when it comes to a fair share of security. protection for their kids and gun-free zones for ours. >> white house was quick to respond. jay carney saying, "most americans agree that the president children should not be used as pawns in a political fight. but to go so far to make the safety of the president children the subject of the attack ad is repug nant and cowardly." down the row quickly. >> even if you believe it's hypocritical as i to and substantive argument that they are making it doesn't make sense to make the president of the united states sympathetic that many americans identify with him as a father. >> it's a vile ad. every president's children are protected. i don't know why you highlight two kids that are vulnerable who go to school in this day. >> as usual, unsubtle. the president's kids are targets and they need special protection. to compare them with kids anywhere else is ridiculous logically. the way it's done with the anger and the accusation of h
lincoln. the lincoln family bible was in illinois at the time. mr. obama used the same bible when he took the oath of office in 2009. the president will be sworn in using what is described as dr. martin luther king's personal bible. it traveled with dr. king when he traveled across our nation. and performing, of course, is an honor. the ultimate honor for any kind of band. repeat performance for the isirettes. this iowa drill team features fancy foot work. they performed for senator obama at a 2000 campaign event, and earned an invitation to his first inauguration. and they say it means a lot to be asked back. >> to be able to do it a second time, that means he understood us on a personal way and it's just -- it's mesmerizing. >> yes, nice to be asked back yet again. and this morning, showing you scenes from washington, d.c., and the astronauts on board the international space station will have this view of the inauguration. the iss crew members captured these images of washington, d.c. yesterday. it shows the potomac, and where the inauguration will be held. coming up, james clyburn will
are protected by armed guards at their schools. mr. obama demands the wealthy pay their fair share of taxes, but he is just another elitest hypocrite when it comes to protection for their kids. >> the nra suffered a big loss in new york today with governor andrew cuomo signing into law the toughest gun control legislation in the country, strengthening the state's existing assault weapons ban. >> going to put rules in place that actually protect innocent people in society. that is what the state of new york is doing today. and it says common sense can win. and good people can win. and you can actually get government to work and get good things to happen. you can overpower the extremists with intelligence and with reason and with common sense. >> the nra immediately released this statement. these gun control schemes have failed in the past and will have no impact on public safety and crime, sadly, the new york legislature gave no consideration to that reality while lawmakers could have taken a step towards strengthening mental health reporting. instead, they opted for stopping the rights of g
the president. >> the president of the united states, barack h. obama and mrs. obama accompanied by senator charles e. schumer and mrs. schumer. ♪ >> the president circulating in the statuary hall in the capitol. it's one of the larger spaces. >> it's the old house before the civil war. that was the house of representatives. >> it's one of the biggest places that you can put a large ceremonial event. these events, these luncheons post-inaugural luncheons have grown to be rather unwieldy over the years, and they shrunk them down to the point where there's still, like, what, hundreds of people there. it's not the sort of thing that goes on for hours and hours and hours. simply so that we can get the inaugural parade underway before dark. >> you notice that the first lady changed? >> yes. >> see, this is like a wedding almost. you have the -- have you to rush away to the car at the end and do the whole thing. i always thought it was interesting. the president -- i remember reagan came back and had to change before his inaugural parade after the ceremony. >> do we get to cover any of this? do
elementary school in northeast washington there. i have to say mrs. obama sporting a little more form than the president painting that bookcase. >> she also has a pair of gloves. maybe he's worried about getting dirty. we lost the shot. that's okay. a lot going on today in the nation's capital. >> service events going on all over the city. with all the things going on, security is extremely tight. some of it you can see, some of it not so obvious. we want to talk to chris lawrence, who's covering this for us live on the national mall. chris, what's being done to secure all these inaugural sites? >> reporter: basically, this is an all hands on deck operation. some is easy to see like the police force, 2,000 to 3,000 other officers that have been pulled in from around the country. there are about 6,000 national guard troops also helping out, and that doesn't even count the federal agents, the fbi and of course the secret service who is running this whole operation. but what you don't see are the cameras. they have literally pulled in cameras from just about every agency that is around washin
. >> the bangs issue. so much focus has been on the new hair style for mrs. obama. what i want to ask you about, is this the type of thing that makes a first lady go crazy? >> a little bit. you know, when will we ever -- i'd like to ask you about your tie and your suit and all the things that you're wearing today that are different. >> a lot of pressure. >> it is, always. you are really conscious of the camera always being on you, but if you're confident about how you're presenting yourself, then i think you feel real good about it. >> who is behind a decision like that? how many people have to weigh in on that decision? >> polls and focus groups. >> you have to do some polling and besides the president, maybe, but a lot of folks, right? >> you are your own ceo as first lady and you'll make the decision. but, even the fact that they worked with the press and with their press secretary to release it definitely would indicate that there is discussion going on behind the scenes. >> will she have a legacy of her own, do you think? >> i think she will. every first lady does. i spent my life at ameri
that spots, and mrs. obama, and walked a good stretch of the parade. it is a wonderful thing to see, the president and first lady walking down as of an avenue. i hope we will tomorrow, but we never know. >> security is very tight and you need certain color-coded as a for certain areas. we know that the president will walk at least along that stretch. lisa is on the phone from the vienna, democrat's line. >> good morning. weren and my self fortunate enough to attend the inauguration four years ago, the concert. at that time, he was 8 years old. my question to the speech writers, i am quite certain that you know a lot of history. for this particular president, an african-american president. for his birthright and everything else to be questioned, the racial disrespect that he received, have they ever read about other presidents, when doing research for a speech, where a president has faced so many racial undertones? >> being the first african- american president and the only african-american president, the only non-white male president in history, of course, he would be the only one t
that everything is ok. then, i get into a car and go over to the white house where the president and mrs. obama, my wife, and i, and everybody on the inaugural committee, we will have teeth. he and i pride alone in the car over to the capital. -- ride alone in the car over to the capital. i promised i would not bring up politics. then we wait in an anteroom where we will serve greek style yogurt to people. and we marched out onto the platform at a ceremony.
? if the past is any guide, mrs. obama, with those famous arms, tends to favor strapless and one shoulder gowns fitted at the waist and color. sources say strapless is at least one option she's considering. designers are mindful this piece of clothing is not just an outfit but a piece of history too. >> you have to describe in this garment what she's feeling, the importance of the moment, i felt like betsy ross. >> reporter: this dediner gained fame after she dressed the first lady at the inauguration swearing in morning. >> i wanted to dot inauguration. >> why? >> because that's the moment that the whole world is a part of. and the whole world was watching. >> reporter: why this time. >> some people wanted to know are you going to be a part of it this time? there's nothing more important than seeing someone else have this gift in what they do with it. >> reporter: and just so we're clear, for the inauguration the first lady will not be wearing clothes off the rack. we can pretty safely say these are made to measure, one-of-a-kind, custom garments commissioned by the white house. but imagine th
's room for signing ceremony. mr. obama and dr. biden will go to the side. sergeant-at-arms and paul irving will announce and signing will begin. mike emanuel in the row taund today. to you. >> reporter: we see lawmakers coming into the capitol rotunda. the president is obviously in great spirits. this obviously is a happy day for him and his family and for the american people. this is uniquely american day. the president seemed to be in great spirits. said hello to supporters as coming through. very deliberate in his steps. definitely looked around and observed beautiful artwork here in the rotunda and made his way to very ornate room in the united states capitol, the president's room. just off the senate chambers. so. not his first time going through the process. definitely seemed to take a some moments to enjoy the view, recognizing the magnitude of this moment, shep. shepard: mike, thanks. we have a presidential historian and dean of the school of communication at hofstra university, on long island, new york. evan joins us. it thoughts briefly what we just witnessed? >> i think f
some shelves, he thanked vol tors for their service. >> again, we submit that mrs. obama was better at painting than her husband was. she looks much more into it. we are talking about the day of national service on the mall. suzanne malveaux is there where it's all being held. suzanne? >> hey, i'm trying to hear you. we're kind of competing a little bit with they're rallying up the crowd here pop we expect to see a couple of folks here. angela basset who is going to be taking the is taken soon. she is taking the stage right now we understand. we also are going to be hearing from philadelphia mayor nutter who is also going to be talking about the importance of giving back in the community. it's been a lot of passion here. of course, the different organizations that people are signing up to figure out what they can do to help folks in need on this national service day on this summit day. we have seen eva longoria talking about the need to reach out to latino he community. immigration reform is something she has been pushing. she saw the vice president's son beau biden. he serves in th
, this is unjust" they are worse now. mr. obama, the first african- american president, it does not echo the sentiments or the revolution of values articulated by martin luther king in 1968. the empire is worse than when martin luther king warned about the vietnam and spreading war in east asia. there are more drones, more killings of innocent people, more violations of national sovereignties by the obama military. of course the military budget swallows half of the discretionary budget, over $800 billion not counting other sub budgets and a permanent energy. domestically, we have a much higher unemployment rate in 1968. we have more poverty absolutely and relatively and 1968. we certainly have more home foreclosures and more consumer debt. of course, 30 million workers are making today less than the workers made in 1968 adjusted for inflation. that is why we're launching this national drive to overpower congress and split the republicans in congress, organized and what the democrats, so tens of billions of dollars are poured into the community, into the long deserved pockets of these peo
